Anneke Baker
Social Worker, Medicine Hat, AB

I began working for Adoption By Choice in 2008 and I’m very passionate about facilitating adoptions. I feel it is a privilege to work with birth parents and adoptive families through their adoption journey and I appreciate that this can be an exciting and challenging time. My hope is to create comfort, answer questions and be a supportive person through the process. In my I have found this process to be very therapeutic and the connections the birth parents and adoptive families may develop after adoption has been truly amazing. I would be happy to meet with you and offer you unbiased counselling options.
